    Hey guys,

    Currently my business is in Canada purchasing from Canadian distributors but i'm looking to expand and begin working with distributors in the US.

    I read that you need a reseller license in order to purchase items without paying tax. From what i understand, the reseller license is basically an EIN. Did i understand that correctly? Furthermore, in order to obtain this EIN, i need to register my business in a state to receive a tax ID number.

    Other sources i read say i don't need to register for an EIN as my business already has a GST/HST number in Canada. The conflicting information is becoming a bit confusing.

    Before i reach out to a tax lawyer or someone who specializes in this, anyone have any experience doing business in the US as a foreign company?

    If it makes a difference, my company sells in both Canada and the US but the products i will be sourcing in the US will be sold in the US. They will NOT be imported into Canada.

    Thanks!
